Israeli Forces Disguised as Arab Family With Pregnant Woman Arrest Terrorist
JNS.org – An undercover Israel Defense Forces unit disguised as an Arab family, including a pregnant woman, on Thursday covertly entered a hospital and arrested a terrorist.
The IDF, Border Police, and Shin Bet security agency learned that 20-year-old Azzam Azat Shabadan Shalaldeh, suspected of stabbing and injuring an Israeli last month, was hiding out in the Al-Ahli Hospital in Hebron. They joined forces to perform a covert operation in which some agents were in ordinary clothes posing as a family bringing another operative, disguised as a woman in labor, to the hospital.
A relative of Shalaldeh attacked the agents and was shot and killed, the Shin Bet said, adding that security forces “will not allow safe refuge for terrorist operatives, whoever they are.”
